Until Later

Tuesday, April 5, 2016


Last night, was a very  beautiful evening.  Hundreds came by to pay their final respects to my beautiful sister. She worked for 17 yrs. with Bank of America and her bank family was  lovingly   represented with dozens of her colleagues including her management team.  Her ex-manager and long time friend of over 10 yrs. gave a wonderful speech recollecting of how Gladys always uplifted his spirit.  It was a very beautiful and moving speech.  The flower arrangements from her work family were beautiful and I am sure my sister loved them.


Classmates from her graduating class of 94′ from University High School were also present.  Recollecting of how well she always treated people and how she always had a smile in her face. They also presented Gladys with a beautiful flower arrangement worthy of her beautiful heart.

  

I think the most beautiful arrangement was the one made by her daughter Bailey.  Gladys loved Bailey like only a mother can.  She will always be her first born and her baby. We will always treasure Bailey as my sister did.



It was a cheerful night among all of the heart ache. We celebrated her life.  We did not say good bye, but more like ‘until later’.

Going back to the funeral home to make our way to the Chapel Hill Cemetery, was harder than I thought it was going to be.  The thought of you being put to rest finally hit me and broke me down. The ceremony was also beautiful and meaningful as you were remembered and honored in a worthy way.

The Rosario Family will eternally be grateful for all those who came to pay their respects, for all those donated to the GoFundMe account to help pay for the funeral services as well as for all the donations given to help raise my nieces and nephews.  Also to the Orange County Sheriffs office for all of their support.

Gladys, you will always be in our hearts and your spirit will always be with us in our conscious.  I will love you forever my beautiful and angelic sister.

  1. Today it finally hit me that putting a dear friend to rest was actually real. I couldn’t stop crying on my way to the funeral home this morning. I got there, and my hands were shaking, my eyes were swollen, my nerves were just a wreck. I don’t usually go to funerals because it brings me flashbacks of when I lost my brother, but for Gladys I had to make an exception. Gladys was one of the first people I met in our 9th grade year in University High School back in 1990. Gladys was such a kind soul. She was humble, with a happy spirit – nothing seemed to bother her, and she was always smiling. After we graduated High School we kept in contact, we used to talk on the phone, we used to laugh, and reminisce about our great years in UHS. Like most people, we lived our own lives, got married, had kids, and we didn’t talk as much after a while. The last time I saw her was when I went to the bank (BOA) one Saturday morning. I remember she was still pregnant of her last child. She was working as a teller in the front counter and I wanted her to attend me, but she was busy with another customer. I wanted to talk to her so bad, but all I could do was wave at her and say hello because she was busy. Who would of known that that was the last day I would see my friend. Now my heart aches because unfortunately she’s not here any longer ….

    To the Rosario family – I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Senora Gladys usted y su esposo criaron una hija extraordinaria. Vivan siempre orgullosos de lo maravillosa que era su hija. De corazon les digo, que cualquier cosa que necesiten, estoy a su desposicion. Felix tiene mi numero, estoy a sus ordenes.

    I miss you Gladys …. you’ll always be loved and remembered!
    Rest In Peace my friend.
